IOF’s legal and advocacy initiative for families with school-age children, Families for Educational Freedom (FEF), today launched two new important resources for parents.
In addition to their popular CRT Checklist, which has already been widely shared and distributed, the FEF project now has form letters for parents to use in opting their children out of certain lessons or educational exercises that are based on harmful and dangerous ideologies like Critical Race Theory (CRT) and radical gender theory/LGBT activism.
FEF explains on the site:
Our CRT Lessons opt-out letter informs school administrators that your child(ren) will not participate in “any instruction in Critical Race Theory,” and further stipulates that “the prohibition extends to any promotion, legitimization, or normalization of CRT, no matter how your program or approach is defined or packaged,” and to “all school system employees and agents in any setting.”
[The Intrusive Survey opt-out letter] informs school administrators that your child(ren) will not participate in “any survey, questionnaire, or any activity… that requires the child to answer questions regarding race, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, national origin, race, disability, family structure, family association, religious attendance, and/or socioeconomic status” and similar information.
The letters are free to use and distribute, and will be a welcome help to many parents whose children are soon returning to their education in school environments unfortunately increasingly inimical to the faith-based values that many American families hold dear.
